    Limelight is not what Limelight was in the 1990s. It was a hugely popular nightclub in the former Episcopalian church. It was where I DJ'd for club kids, ravers, and goths regularly. #PorcelainTheBook Read more

    Old church made into a night club and got converted into shopping center? Outside never changed but inside definitely is more nightclub-ish black and white color scheme. Now Grimaldi is there

    Recommend your tourist visits to come shop here! They will be impressed with having very chic boutiques inside of a church looking building!

    p.s. Lady with the "gold" crap for your face... when you have2 women who absolutely have credit cards, you just don't focus on one person - you engage the group . Thus, you got zero sales...

    Having transformed from a church to a club to a mall, the building itself is the main attraction.

    Used to be a nicer mix of boutiques. Not as diverse anymore.

    The 2003 film Party Monster, starring Macaulay Culkin & Seth Green, was based on party promoter Michael Alig's killing and dismemberment of Angel Melendez, a drug dealer at New York's Limelight Club.

    Opened in November 1983 by owner Peter Gatien, the New York Limelight originally started as a disco & rock club. In Sept. 2003, it reopened under the name "Avalon"; closing its doors for good in 2007.

    This place has changed. Used to be cute indie boutiques. Now it's one massive irritating clubwear store.

    In the 80s, it was one of the city's hottest clubs. In recent years it's been refashioned as a luxury shopping mall of sorts. Only in New York.

    They hit the jackpot when they made this iconic space a unique, hip marketplace... Then they ruined it by turning it into another generic dept. store. What a shame.

    This 25000-square-foot former eighties nightclub (and, before that, a church) was converted into a shopping emporium in May 2010. Check out the stained glass windows.

    There are WAY too many salespeople on the floor here. 5 "hi can I help you?"s in 5 minutes is actually really annoying.

    much better as a marketplace than a club, this place really shines as a marketplace with it's cute cafe, wine bar &boutique shops. Crossbar (attached) has a great brunch & lovely outdoor seating area

    Layout is super bizarro. Follow the scent of cheese, keep the faith and you'll be rewarded with Grimaldi's.

    No slices at Grimaldi's. At least pretend you're with someone else.

    I remember going here years ago when it was a nightclub. Nice to see the original structure remains and the old stained glass is preserved.

    When we were in college - this used to be a club! Now it's a fab set of shops. Check out the Hunter boots shop for hard to find sizes & colors and grab a bite at the Cross Bar.

    Walk all the way to the back on the first floor to find great salads, sandwiches, cheese and gelato. All the perfect fixings for a picnic in Madison Square Park or a quick work respite at your desk.

    The better shops are on the second floor: Japanese toys at Zakka, vintage jewelry and knick knacks from Old Hollywood, and free cookie samples from Ruby et Violette.
